Named New/Emerging Artist of the Year
& One of the Coast’s ‘Most Likely to Go Big’

Folk-pop quintet Hillsburn is made up of Rosanna Burrill, Paul Aarntzen, Jackson Fairfax-Perry, Clare Macdonald and Clayton Burrill.

Hillsburn released their debut EP in October 2014, and achieved regional and national attention after placing in the top ten in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s Searchlight competition. The band plans to tour across Canada and the U.S. following the release of their debut LP, In The Battle Years, on March 11, 2016.

Still riding high in the wake of a well-received self-titled EP released last October, folk-pop group Hillsburn is looking forward to a summer of touring and a full-length album in the fall.

Hillsburn’s thoughtful, melodic songs come from Aartzen’s literary background. “Lyrically, [Paul] makes up a lot of first-person stories. He’s also writes fiction, so a lot of our songs end up sounding a little like short stories set to music.”

Though rooted in folk, the band prefers to dodge genres in favour of just doing what sounds best. “We don’t necessarily think of ourselves as working within the folk tradition. I think we adopted the folk-pop label because we play mostly acoustic instruments, many of which are staples of folk and bluegrass—acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo,” says Clayton. “But really these were just the instruments we had kicking around when we started trying to arrange some of Paul’s songs. We also use saxophone, keyboard and ukulele.

We’re certainly not folk purists. We have one song that’s just a Rhodes keyboard and three-part harmony. So we tend to use whatever instrumentation sounds best, regardless of what genre the song sounds like as a result.”
